Suspension Of COVID-19 Restrictions

Friday, May 13, 2022

Dear Florida Tech community,

I am pleased to report that we have successfully navigated the conclusion of the academic year. Thank you for your perseverance and teamwork in making that possible. I would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on our ongoing efforts regarding the operation of the campus during the Pandemic.

Per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Brevard County remains a “low” transmission area for COVID-19. Current CDC guidance and recommendations for our area are as follows:

  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines
  • Get tested if you have symptoms
  • People may choose to mask at any time
  • People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask

After careful review of the situation in our own campus community, Florida Tech is normalizing all operations related to COVID-19, effective immediately. Any remaining COVID-19 restrictions instituted by the university are now suspended. Florida Tech will continue encouraging safe practices like handwashing and personal health monitoring while promoting CDC safeguards as well.

We will closely follow the COVID-19 situation through the summer and review practices and protocols before the start of Fall classes on Monday, Aug. 22. If adjustments to our plans are needed, we will announce them as soon as possible.

Again, thank you for your support and partnership.

Sincerely,

Marco Carvalho, Ph.D.
Acting President
